Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Monday, June 10, 2019

Hi there! Today I have a card that I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

To make this card I started by trimming down a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and then stamping the images I wanted to use. I couldn't wait to use this new stamp set! I used a few colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to water color the boat image and shade the clouds. I felt like it needed something more so I added some silver stickles to the corners of the sails and the clouds. To create the background piece I used distress oxide ink and a diagonal striped stencil and then trimmed it down. I finished by adhering the background piece to the card front and then popping up the front piece with foam tape.

My Supplies:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Your Light
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black, Distress Oxide Black Soot, Zig Clean Color Real Brush in Geranium Red, Yellow, Light Blue, Persian Blue, and Light Gray
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth, Papertrey Ink White Stamper's Select
Other: Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil
